Tips for beating back the winter blues.Read More
While it felt like January was 792 days long I feel like February sped by like the speed limit on a Texas highway. It wasn’t my best month to say the least. The winter blues tend to hit me hard the end of January and through February—normally manifesting in fatigue, overeating, and no desire to move off the couch. The colder and grayer it is outside, the harder it hits me. The desire to do anything is pretty much non-existent and its difficult. As the sunshine made an appearance a few times I started to feel a little better but if we are being transparent—very few things got accomplished.

April GoalsRead More
It's almost April. The first quarter of 2018 is drawing to a close and we are in full swing at our house!
Drinking: all the fruit-infused water I can fit in my tumbler. My favorite is strawberry infused water but I am almost known to be a fan of a blackberry-pineapple combo.
Wearing: nike shorts, long sleeved t-shirts & my newest pair of splurge shoes.
Wanting: a herb garden planter box, the end of track season, front flowerbed overhaul & to reach a a big debt countdown in April.
Reading: Murder on the Oriental Express, The Best Yes: Making Wise Decisions in the Midst of Endless Demands, The Blue Bistro & Retired Inspired
Loving: high school baseball games but not track meets, commuting [full post on this coming soon], my library card & the next big home improvement project we have on tap.
Excited About: a long weekend [no school Friday] & a planning day on Monday. It's the little things, like 3.5 hours of uninterrupted planning time with my team means we can accomplish so much more than our normal once a week thirty minute planning session.
Buying: new doors for the house's interior. Our current doors scream "stuck in the 1970's" and I cannot take it anymore. We are replacing a couple at a time as the cash-flows but knowing they are coming makes my heart so very happy.
Reminiscing About: #stmaddoxsday. we celebrated two of our favorite people this month as they [finally] tied the knot and then threw one epic party. such a fun time dancing, laughing & loving on them.
Looking to Tackle: we are officially closing out our credit card! while it has been paid off for awhile I have had a hard time with the whole, "cut it up & close it out" portion of the follow through. it was a false sense of security knowing it would be there if I needed it but we are ready to say "bye Felicia"!
Saying Good-Bye To: Winter. We’ve taken the heating blanket off the bed, sweaters have been packed away and Dixie & Duke have begun blowing their winter coat. Spring in Texas is here!
February is going to be a good one.Read More
